Here is my little footstool, finally covered in Florence Broadhurst. It has changed considerably from the 'Before' shot I posted a few weeks ago. The reason it took so long - it's my first and last attempt at upholstering. In future, I'll save up and pay the experts. Pictured with it are two chairs and a table I found on the street. The chair on the left was fine to renovate - I just painted it, and stuck the cushion back on. The chair on the right, however, was a different story. That was a nightmare to take off the cover, strip off the layers of old fabric and wash the material, which I then put back on. They're all a little rough around the edges - I hope no one ever looks too closely at any of them. At least I get a warm fuzzy feeling that I saved all four pieces from a life of ugliness. Or maybe some would say they're uglier now that they were before. Who knows?
